It was a joy to spend two nights in this historic and beautiful heritage hotel - the Maharaja's former palace. Privileged to have been upgraded to the magnificent and huge 'Royal Suite' - very comfortable but our only disappointment is that it didnt have external views. Consistently welcoming and helpful staff, but not intrusively so. The gardens are beautiful and... More

We stayed here at the recommendation of our travel agent, and got a very good price in the low season. The hotel has a most impressive entrance, with the long, straight driveway leading from the centre of town giving you an idea of the grandness that awaits you. Despite its historical royal connections and absolute luxury, I felt the hotel... More

I stayed 4 nights in Bikaner in the very hot off season at this very grand palace turned hotel. When Rajasthan joined India the Rajas were given stipends in lieu of their previous tax collecting. Under Indira Gandhi this was abolished so the Maharajas were reduced to changing their homes into hotels. I feel no sympathy for them at all!... More

When you arrive to the hotel you can only say wow to the nice building and park. The complex has been arranged to an hotel preserving the old Manor and the old equipment but a long time ago probably and what is a very nice visit to start with, becomes a bad hotel experience... The rooms have no window, the... More

I was fortunate enough to spend two nights at this lovely palace. The buildings, grounds, gardens and surroundings are absolutely stunning and very well maintained and it feels like a dream to stay in a place like this. Due to it being low season, the nightly rate was very attractive and affordable. The staff from the front desk, to the... More

Impressive old world charm – originally a palace built in the early 1900s of local sandstone before being converted into a hotel. The hotel in steeped in Indian / Colonial history with numerous photographs adorning the walls as well as an abundance of mounted hunting trophies of deer, antelope, tigers and lions. There is free wireless internet in the rooms... More

We were a group of 4 grown ups and one child who stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Since it was the off season we were (very nicely) upgraded for our rooms and stayed in two adjacent large suites on the ground floor itself. The food served in the hotel's restaurants are so-so (but I would imagine acceptable for... More
